Audio Book Summary
In The Global Achievement Gap, education expert Tony Wagner
situates our school problems in the larger context of the demands of the
global knowledge economy. With insights gained from visits to
classrooms in leading suburban schools, he analyzes performance by
considering the skills needed to get a good job and become a productive
citizen. Highlighting discussions with young people and the adults who
work with them, Wagner also explains the ways in which today's
generation is differently motivated to excel.A manifesto for the
twenty-first century, The Global Achievement Gap is a must-listen for anyone interested in seeing our young people achieve their full potential.
